RetrofitWorks celebrated a significant milestone at their 10th-anniversary event held at Lord’s Cricket Ground. The gathering was a resounding success, uniting industry leaders, suppliers, and retrofit advocates. The event served as a platform for exchanging information within the retrofitting community.

His engaging talk highlighted the company’s achievements as well as giving a glimpse into our vision for the future growth of retrofitting, and energy-efficient, eco-friendly homes.
